Aerospace engineering's Rogers awarded ARO Young Investigator Award

RogersDr. Jonathan Rogers, assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, has been awarded the Army Research Office Young Investigator Award for his proposal, “State Estimation for Complex Dynamical Systems Using Belief Function Theory.”

The three-year award with funding of $150,000 was awarded through ARO’s Complex Dynamics and Systems program. Rogers has collaborated extensively with the Army Research Lab over the past five years with work on smart weapons guidance and control research.

Rogers leads the Helicopter and Unmanned Systems Laboratory at Texas A&M and brings experience in both government and academia, contributing extensively to the field of guidance, navigation, and control systems for autonomous vehicles.

The ARO’s Young Investigator Program seeks to identify and support academic scientists early in their careers and who show exceptional promise for doing creative research. The objectives of this program are to attract outstanding faculty members for institutions of higher learning to the Army’s research program, to support their research, and to encourage their teaching and research careers.
